And Xilinx is working on their next FPGA that will contain and ARM9 - muc h higher end, but the same concept. It doesn't specifically say but I am assuming the Intel device is a multi chip module and not integrated into one piece of Si?

"an FPGA app store " that's actually a very good and very old idea. but not in the gold rush Apple store sense of the idea, a closed restricted place where closed IP law rules. but rather a nice Fully Open small/medium businesslike place where you can get and produce Real Open and closed IP cores as micro payment prices per unit commercially sold and free for personal use LGPL style.

Just thinking out loud: won't Achronix be jealous after seeing Intel cooperate with Altera?

There are lots of choices out there for robotics ? Multi-core devices, and Asymmetric Multi core devices choices abound. NXP have announced an Asym.Cortex M4.M0 pairing, and a number of vendors have RISC IO units. See the new TI AM180x, well under $10 http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/am1808.html It has what TI call a PRU http://focus.ti.com/lit/wp/spry136/spry136.pdf says : "The PRU subsystem consists of two 32-bit RISC cores (referred to as programmable real-time units, or PRUs), local data and instruction memories, an interrupt controller for capturing and manipulating system-wide events, and input/output pins. The PRU instruction set is simple and execution times are deterministic."

These are dual-die parts, so design/data support will be from each company. I'd expect some Some Eval/Seed apps will be jointly developed.

Did Intel publish the preliminary datasheet/ manual for these new devices for the designers to take a look at? What are the packages these FPGA+Atom devices are going to be available? Who is responsible for the support, Altera or Intel or both?

Possible, but what about the cost?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
